We went to Sayulita and found it to be very busy, very dusty and thank goodness we made it to the beach and found Captain Pablo's. It was great to sit on the sand, enjoy a great margarita and some very good nachos.

There are lots of very good restaurants in Sayulita. We found even more on our third visit in 13 years. Most of them are listed here. If you want to sit on the beach (under umbrellas), drink cold beer and eat great seafood for a...More

It's a restaurant. If you want to rent a surfboard, there are shops all over Sayulita, including on the beach.
